In Topic: Scott Stevens No Longer on Coaching Staff

10 September 2014 - 10:22 AM

I'd like to see Stevens back in the organization one day.  I think we'll see him again eventually.  I think he did a fine time here and I'd like to see Stevens back when Santini is developed.  I'm sure Albelin will be great, but I'm sure Stevens performed fine. 

In Topic: Training Camp invites

You are all acting like these players made the team already.  They're being invited to camp, by no means will they be on the roster opening night.  Kaberle might make the team and be that 8th D and insurance player.  He might take that veteran role in case of injury.  I don't think Gomez is any better than Bernier, Carter, Jajo, Boucher, or even Matteau

I see Camm wearing number 9 or maybe 25 or 21.  I agree with the people saying that the low jersey numbers is a Lou-like team first mentality and I love it personally.  It's taking this idea that no player is above the team.  Lou giving HOF'ers or proven players their traditionally favorite numbers is a consideration for those players.  Saying to them that you identify with this number and you've earned it.  Is that fair? Maybe not, but it's hard to argue that Mogilny. Jagr, and Richer didn't deserve to get their numbers with their careers they established. 

I like the current system, but I'll always agree that the front part of the jersey is a lot more important.

as far as bettman goes on riding a hard line if and more likely when kovalchuk comes back... you would have to think that he would be willing to get kovy back in the nhl with open arms. kovy is a top player in the league and he dipped to go to another league.. people like watching him you want the nhl to have all of the top talent right? so im pretty sure he would be more willing to have him come back.. as far as lou goes, kovy leaving was just an all arounf great thing. too great of a happening to not have been a mutual agreement which is why i dont understand why people get so upset about it and still a year later.. if you dont realize that then i dont know i guess you just dont understand or see the entire happening of the situation, so with this yes when the timing is right i absolutely think lou will have kovy back if kovy wants to come back.

You're wrong.  Let me quote the article as evidence to why you're wrong.  He said, "You'd never look at someone coming back at 35."  Lou literally dodges every question about Kovalchuk because he's done with him. 

So he's 35, and then has to wait an entire year of not playing, so he's 36 if he were to come back.  It's not happening.  I would agree with you if Kovy pulled his stunt when he was 25 or 26, but he pulled that sh!t when he was 30.
 

 

“I’ll answer that the best way you can. He cannot come back until he is 35. He’s (31) now. You’d never look at someone coming back at 35 when he’s (31),” the GM explained.  - Lou

Clemmenson... wow uh... that's quite a very sarcastic post shut down by one word.

Notice how I said sarcastically, PLENTY OF RECENT EVIDENCE.  I guess my counter-point to your post is now invalid.  Clemmenson is one signing within two years.  I guess one signing that fits your argument is all you need man.  Wow is right.  I like how you defended you're argument with plenty of evidence of recent instances to back up your stupid jab at Lou.  You used the word "obsession".  Obsession to me would mean it happens every year or very often.  It's not an obsession and you're just looking to take every little stupid jab you can because you think it's funny. 

Scoreboard: 7 Recent acquisitions(non-Devils):1 former Devil acq
 
1. Who was lucky to play as often as he did when he was a Devil
2. Is by no means a lock to play on the Devils this year(see Janssen, Cam)
